Vicious rumors are swirling that new 2013 Shelby GT-500 is going to be one amazing piece of machinery. Not that the current one isn’t badass, but the future supposedly holds some awesome performance upgrades! We have heard that the new Shelby will be getting a nice 5.8-liter upgrade from the current 5.4, and a brand new Eaton TVS unit supercharger giving it a borderline-ridiculous 620 horses straight out of the gate! It is also rumored to have a little bit of that new look that is in store for the Ford Mustang coming in 2014 -2015.
This is amazing news since Chevrolet has released their brand new 6.2-liter V8 supercharged ZR1 Corvette, which is putting out about, hmmm, 620 horses. The 620 horsepower ZR1 comes at a sobering $50k price increase from the Shelby. Well, Chevy, that’s not bad but I think we may have one-upped you on this one! Although, we may be just a little biased, the rumor certainly seems to be in our favor!
We don’t know for sure, but if this is what the future looks like, I see some ‘Vette spankin’ coming soon to a drag strip near you.
So what do you think? Will the 2013 Shelby smoke the new Corvette? Comment below!
